ikki5 commented on Nintendo's Official UK Store Promises Extra St...:

It's too bad in NA, you cannot order Amiibo from Nintendo online.... or anything really except for hardware and such.

Though with the restock, I managed to get a Village, Marth, Pit, Captain Falcon and Wii Fit Trainer at EB games yesterday. We happened to walk in as they were unboxing a new stock. We basically took them as the put the pricing sticker on and others behind me did the game. All of those Amiibo were basically sold before they made it to the shelves.



ikki5 commented on Nintendo Gets Tough With Miiverse Bans, and So...:

@manu0 Well, if it actually contributed to stuff, I think it would be great but there is really no meat to it as it is not optimized for discussions or anything. Just a "here's what I did" that 20 people are see and 100 people just blow over. You may get lucky actually get people "yeahing" your post but there is no meat to the service.

I got flagged for posting a screenshot from the 3rd level in world two of Super Mario Bros. U once because it did not contain spoilers which i found odd. I also got flag once for posting a screenshot of the Mother Brain without having the missiles item on Super Metroid without spoilers... though that one is understandable.



ikki5 commented on Pokémon Jukebox Arrives For Free on Android D...:

@Jenraux Actually, Nintendo has shares in Gamefreak but Nintendo owns 1/3rd of the IP, Gamefreak owns a third and the Pokemon Company owns the other 3rd. Nintendo is the parent company of The Nintendo company meaning they own the majority of the shares and because Nintendo owns a 3rd and a large part of the shares of the Pokemon IP. they basically get to say what happens to it. It is a complicated IP ownership.

Gamefreak is also not really a second party company as they are developing games for the PS4, PC and Xbox One while not developing the game for Nintendo at all and have developed for the Playstation in the past.



ikki5 commented on Hyrule Warriors Producer Confirms More Charact...:


Maybe but they do make it sound like they are all included in the digital event.

"This game is a re-imagining of the Wii U game. It will include all the DLC characters from that one."

Now that could mean it will include them to buy or not but it sure does sound more like they are included in the base game.



ikki5 commented on Nintendo Download: 25th June (Europe):

@MikeW It'll be months before it comes to NA. We have not had an N64 title released since the original 3 they said were coming. Don't forget, we still have not had any new Wii games either so don't expect much.



ikki5 commented on Hyrule Warriors Producer Confirms More Charact...:

So... the DLC from the Wii U version is all included in the 3DS one.... kind of a kick in the Teeth to Wii u owners if you ask me. Unless the Wii U owners get the 3DS characters for free... lol, what am I saying? I should know that is unlikely.



ikki5 commented on Reggie Fils-Aime Acknowledges the Need to Impr...:

How many times has it been now since they acknowledged this now? And it the issue still never gets addressed? It'll be just like what they said about the Virtual console and how they need to fix that and never did.



ikki5 commented on Editorial: Cheer Up, There Are Some Exciting G...:

Yeah but those exciting games kind of die at Christmas I don't like knowing that there is only 2 games (1 I am interested in) that is scheduled for 2016.... a whole two month window and we know 2 games... Also the fact that i went into E3 with the plan to buy 3 games and now out of E3 with the plan to buy... still 3 games and one of them may now be dropped. I don't see any reason to be anymore cheery than I was before even more so that i was basically told my favourite platform is basically come Christmas.



ikki5 commented on Satoru Iwata Didn't Apologise For Nintendo's E...:

It wouldn't matter if he did or didn't apologize. The Wii U had been put in palliative care until the end of 2015 and then dead in 2016 so it doesn't make a difference. it just means that I will take more caution when buying Nintendo and investing money into Nintendo in the near future especially when it comes to consoles.



ikki5 commented on First Impressions: Our Maiden Flight In Star F...:

@ningeek185 Just so you know, games are usually completed and in the testing/debugging phase 2-3 months before they are shipped and then you give them a few weeks to another month for packaging and shipping so 6 months really is not a lot of time to be tweaking a game.



ikki5 commented on Metroid Prime Producer Wants to Make Another S...:


There is a pretty big fallacy in your point about Link needing to be in Zelda and Wand of Gamelon. For one Wand of Gamelon was not Nintendo. Nintendo did not give those guys the idea and say "make this game without Link." The people who made that game due to the deal they had with Nintendo, they were allowed use of the IP and they turned it to garbage. It is probably one of the main reasons why Nintendo is so protective of their IPs. There is a reason why the CD-i games were not in the Zelda Historia or Timeline also.



ikki5 commented on First Impressions: Kicking Off With Metroid Pr...:

@Savino Not even close. There were others just as annoyed as I was. E3 last year raised my spirits about them up after what seemed to be such a grim Wii U, then throughout this year... just disappointment after disappointment and then this. To be honest. This E3 direct told me how much more money I will not be spending on gaming. I had 3 games planned to buy this year before E3, I still have 3 games planned to buy this year which may drop to 2 depending on how Star Fox turns out.



ikki5 commented on First Impressions: Kicking Off With Metroid Pr...:

I hope it flops. it is like they create a new IP that looks kind of garbage and are unsure of it so to try and convince people to buy the new IP they slap a popular IP on it. I for one will never buy this and I hope it flops.



ikki5 commented on Mario & Luigi Paper Jam Brings More RPG Action...:

This was a total disappointment for me. All I wanted was a proper Paper Mario game going back to what it used to be/should be and not what happened after the thousand year door. Worst Nintendo E3 since 2008
